I need a new camera

While I wait here's a few links from my trip to Texas to visit my sister. And earlier this week Justin and I took the kids to visit our friends Ben & Jenna in San Diego. But for the sake of having at least one pic, here's one from Katelyn's wedding in between both those trips:

3 mormon boys, 3 ukulele's and a new churchy song I would love to add to my church playlist of songs.

(It takes a while to "buffer") Do you love it sisters? They're not professionals, but how sweet they sound!

The one picture that made me buy my first magazine while waiting in line at the grocery store.

You'll have to excuse the lame computer pics, but how fun is this wreath?!
What they did:
styrofoam wreath
black duct tape wrapped around the styrofoam
glued on candy corn
That's it! I can do that.

Okay and remember the blossoms on the sticks from my back yard?
I've totally got more sticks;) And I'm sure there's black spray paint somewhere.

Katelyn's wedding slideshow minus the Obama photoshops (although if I knew how to do it I would have LOVED to put something in the background!)

She asked me to come up with a slideshow for her reception and this is all I could come up with. (Thanks Rebecca for the Kindle commercial song.)

Spray painting those ugly (but useful) security screen doors!

Half way through painting these I wanted to yank them off! (who am I kidding I wanted to yank them off the minute we moved in, but it's so nice to leave the front door open all night long and let the cool breeze come through). But here's the thing... they don't come off!!! I killed myself getting one already loose screw off only to find the rest were entirely NOT loose. The one-way screws are sloped and ridiculous. I even got a fancy drill bit from Home Depot claiming to get them off. Didn't work.

I finished painting them. Notice the one screw missing- only to tease me. Now I can't get it back in. Also if you look closely the porch lamp is at a severe slant. Might have broken the blue box thing that holds it in the stucco. Opps. (You can fix that right, Justin?) And then I need a new handle and deadbolt. Whatever. I always do these jobs half way.
